Big Dig 2023 on September 9 in Colorado to Fight Pediatric Cancer
For one day, kids and adults can be Colorado "construction workers" at this fun event that's raising money for a great cause. Get behind the controls of these behemoths and feel the power of Big Dig equipment.
For generations, kids have played with Tonka and Tonka-style trucks, letting the imagination go to a world where they are "in charge." This Big Dig event gives us all the chance to re-live those days on a much, much, larger scale.
Put on by the American Cancer Society of Northern Colorado, Big Dig Colorado has been around for a few years providing this day of fun. There'll be lots of rigs that kids and adults can get behind the wheel of.
Dubbed "Construction vs. Cancer," Big Dig Colorado will be taking place at Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, which is right off of I-25 in Longmont.
Big Dig 2023 will also include an "Equipment Rodeo," where experienced operators will have the chance at competing in an obstacle course driving one of the big rigs.
